"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is BEAUTIFUL!!!" - Sophia Loren

"Come what may, and love it. I know why there must be opposition in all things. Adversity, if handled correctly, can be a blessing in our lives. We can learn to love it. As we look for humor, seek for the eternal perspective, understand the principle of compensation, and draw near to our Heavenly Father, we can endure hardship and trial." - Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

"Happiness does not depend upon what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you. It is measured by the spirit with which you meet the problems of life." -Spencer W. Kimball

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." -Unknown

I am so Excited!!!!

Today I went to an internship fair that was on campus with a friend in my major. I didn't really need to talk to anyone about getting an internship because I already have one that I am doing this summer. But I figured might as well look around and see what else is out there.

I walked by this booth for New Haven: A Therapeutic Haven and School for Girls. The human resource director was there talking to students about the school and what it does. I just heard a few things in passing but it sounded like something that I would want to do for a job. For real...as in after I graduate from college. I was so excited so I talked to her for a few minutes about job opportunities after I graduate. She had some really nice things to tell me and I think I might contact them next year when it gets closer to graduation time. Maybe next fall. I think I would really enjoy working with these at risk youth. Oh!! I'm so excited to have some direction in my life. It's a great feeling and hopefully everything will work out for the best.

I am totally finished with my first round of midterms as of today. They were hard and one of them I wasn't totally prepared for but hopefully everything will turn out ok in the end. I am so happy to have them finished before the weekend. I hate leaving exams over weekends if I can avoid it. Who wants to stress over a test on Sunday when you should be enjoying your day of rest?

This weekend should be interesting. It's a long weekend so no school on Monday. Yay!!! But this time around that means Tuesday is magically transformed into Monday. That is the magic that can only happen at BYU. So I get two long days of school right in a row. (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are my long days). I will be in the apartment all bymyself for a couple of days, how sad is that? Megan is going home to Vernal for the weekend. Brittany is flying to Oregon to see her family for the weekend. They ar both leaving on Friday sometimes. Anna is going up to Logan and she is leaving sometime on Saturday. Oh dear, I don't know if I'll be able to sleep in this apartment all by my lonselome. Whatever shall I do??

Well, I really should be doing my homework instead of blogging but that is what college is all about right? Putting off what you can do later to do what you would rather do now? I think I will go do some reading now. I hope you all have enjoyed reading about my life. Love ya all!

P.S. I have decided that Utah has the nicest people on the planet. Well at least Provo does. I was totally walking to work and it takes me 30 minutes to get there so I always leave around 5:30 to get there on time. It's snowing like crazy and miserable to walk in. Anyways, I'm walking along 880 N and this girl rolls down her window and is like "do you want a ride?" So she gave me a ride all the way to work right on the doorstep of the Taylor Building. How nice of her. I hope she is so blessed for her service to me. So I'm way early for work so I decided to add this little tid bit to my blog. Enjoy and stay warm!

Today I was kind of feeling down and out of place a little. Sometimes that happens in life when you know you're supposed to be where you are but you just somehow feel like you are in the wrong place. Anyway, now that I'm done rambling that's how I was feeling today. And then I did some things that helped me out so much. #1: I talked to my bishop and he said something that really helped me out. #2: I was reading my scriptures and I read in Alma 38:5 and it said to trust in the Lord and he will deliver you from your trails. #3: I went singing at a nursing home with my roommates and some guys from ward. It was nice to do some service and it felt good. They really seemed to like it.

Also I've changed my background on my blog to something springing in hopes of spring coming early this year. I'm tired of it being cold and I want to wear my capris and flip flops and not wear a coat up to campus. This is my wishful thinking so help me wish and maybe spring will come early to Provo this year. I love you all and have a good week!
